A GLASWEGIAN has branded an Edinburgh chip shop "racist" after it charged him for ketchup while giving away brown sauce.
Tony Winters has complained to Trading Standards after the shop tried to charge him 25p for a sachet of tomato ketchup, claiming it was "racial discrimination".
Mr Winters was with his fiancee and friend when they went to the Gold Sea chippy in Ferry Road. The father of five, originally from Glasgow but who has lived in Edinburgh for 18 years, said it was "morally wrong" for the shop to offer one sauce free while charging for the other. He said he felt "racially persecuted". Link.
Who says racism can't be funny sometimes...
